Steven Claydon

 
A key figure in the British contemporary art scene, Steven Claydon (born 1969 in London, where he lives and works) maps the curious, culturally-determined territory in which objects exist. Encompassing sculpture, installation, painting, printmaking, video and performance, his practice frequently addresses the myriad ways in which objects mutate in nature and function across time, oscillating between the conditions of raw matter and social signifiers. Through divergent aesthetics and techniques—from high-tech manufacture to traditional artisanship—Claydon deconstructs the ingrained categories and taxonomies via which information is habitually transmitted and cultural capital is co-opted.
